'm here to discuss proposition c the city currently uses federal, state and local funds to support affordable housing programs for both low income and moderate income households. recent federal cutbacks and reductions in state funding have decreased the funding available for affordable housing programs. proposition c would amend the charter to establish a housing trust fund. the city would contribute $20 million dollars to the fund in 2013. each year the city contribution would increase by 2.8 million dollars up to 50.8 million dollars in 2024. after 2024, the city would contribute an annual amount base the on the 50.8 million dollars but adjusted for changes in the city's general fund revenue. the city would use the fund to build, purchase and improve affordable housing, provide 15 million dollars for a loan program for down payment assistance for moderate income home buyers and emergency first responders and provide up to 15 million dollars for a program that would help eligible households avoid foreclosure. proposition c would change the affordable housing requirement for pri

and we feel like we paid 100 percent. the mayor's office has stopped this payment and the city keeps asking the people who live in san francisco, the voters, to pass bonds to continue it support the park system. the 2012 bpbld was originally scheduled for 2014 and it has been moved up. about 41 percent of the 2008 bond, 73 million dollars, has yet to be spent. so we're asking ourselves why now, why with so many parks, with so many problems are you coming to us when you don't even have the maintenance or operational people to maintain these parks? it's time for rec and park system to take care of the things that they build and not just continue to build things. thank you. >> thank you. so, matthew, my understanding is there is a current bond that's still in progress that hasn't been completed yet. why do you believe that we should have another bond issue while we still have one that's in progress? >> correct. great question. the 2008 parks bond passed by voters in 2008, obviously, covered 185 million dollars worth of investments in the park system. that sbair bond is already ful
.org. remember, early voting is available at city hall monday through friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm if you don't vote early, be sure hi, i'm richard janning, board member of the league of women voters. along with the league and sf gof tv, i'm here to discuss proposition e the city requires businesses it pay a flat 1.5 percent tax on payroll cost for work performed in the city. small businesses with less than 250,000 dollars in payroll costs are exempt from the tax. proposition e would create a new city business tax based on gross receipts rather than payroll costs. under the new system, the tax on payroll cost would be eliminated or reduced. businesses with gross receipts of less than 1 million dollars annually will be exempt from the gross receipts tax. the gross receipts tax rate would vary depending on the type of business and its annual gross receipts from its activity in the city. certain businesses that have their headquarters or administrative offices in san francisco that operate primarily in other locations would pay the gross receipts tax based on payroll costs. proposition e w

self contained. in other cities they are located in buildings that look like they can be designed to look like a warehouse, a barn, so they can be designed pretty much to blend in with the neighborhood. >> okay. and then my other question was this is getting technical, but i am curious to know the charge for the customer, the end user consumer for drinking water versus this recycled water what is the intention? you may not have decided the exact cost or anything like that, but what is the intention? is it two different grades? >> we have not decided that yet. that's something that will be developed as the city gets closer to produce its own recycled water, so that is still undetermined. >> undetermined. and you wouldn't have any idea at that point -- >> not more expensive than drinking water. >> but i guess the cost of recycled water and even though we're in favor of it and understand the rational would it be more expensive than regular water? you don't know the answer? >> the cost to produce it or sold at? >> you have a choice at sold at but to produce it in terms what is kn

some of the city's most pressing problems. i am very interested in fixing education. i was elected twice by the voters to the community college board where i have been dealing with tough issues, such as corruption, severe budget deficits and mismanagement. i have been able to make tremendous progress on all of these to fix the problems. now we need to return our attention to the city's schools. the city is not doing enough to help the district. we have a, shrinking cool year while the classes are increasing in size. >> i want to address the affordable, the city fees are going up and up and up and small businesses are priced out of the city and i need to work on that. i also am a sierra club activist. for 15 years working in the green energy field, i am a transit activist as well as well as working on parks. so in the environment i need to tell everyone, that muni is a priority, without muni the city will come to a stand still and it is not working properly right now. other cities can do transit systems even with snow and terrible weather, and san francisco can't. we need to fix it.
the city increase it's maintenance, budgeting and work. thank you. >> thank you very much. is there any other member of the public that would like to speak, please come forward. >> hi, good afternoon. supervisors, i just wanted to point out one thing because this is a public forum, the better market street project is holding pop ups up and down market street every friday this month. basically we have retaken over the kiosks and have public information out there on friday between 12 and 2:00 p.m. this coming friday is at market and powell. near the cable car turn around. it's been an incredibly interesting experience because we reach people that don't normally come to city with public forums. you get the folks that live around there, work around there, tourists and really reaching different people in different sections and getting a much better understanding of how market street simple i want to point out that department of public works just repaved the bike lanes. we are doing short term improvements. lastly, i want to make sure everybody is aware of how important market street really i
the perfect job candidate for our small businesses. because small businesses provide most of our city's jobs, i will create a one-stop, for people looking to start one, or replace the huge bureaucracy that scares so many entrepreneurs from pursuing their dreams. with my experience working with local organization and san francisco law enforcement, i will create an atmosphere of trust and cooperation in the district that will lower street crime and gang violence and above all i will help san francisco to be a leader. we will build bike lanes that will connect the city and reconnect the parks and find new ways to power our city in a way that is better for the planet and for our own wallets. i am not alone in having the vision for the future of san francisco that i do, i'm extremely proud of the people and organizations that have endorsed my candidacy because they share the hopes and the dreams, and the passion of the people that i have always depended on. they are far apart from one another on individual issues but they share my belief that working together we can achieve anything. my supporter
meeting for the city and county of san francisco home of the national league champions san francisco giants. it is tuesday october 23, 2012. madam clerk can you please call the roll. >> supervisor avalos. present. >> supervisor. >> go giants. supervisor cohen. cohen present. supervisor elsbernd. present. supervisor farrell. present. supervisor kim. present. supervisor mar. present. supervisor olague. present. supervisor wiener. present. and mr. president supervisor chiu is not in the chamber. >> thank you. given that supervisor chu just got married we will excuse her this week and will be excused and will you please join me in the pledge of allegiance. >> pledge one and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. >> colleagues we have board minutes from the meetings. could i have a motion on approve those minutes? moved and seconded. without objection that will be approved. madam clerk do we have any communications? >> there are no communications mr. president. >> if you could read items one through six.
ago, an annallocation. that grant was received and done really before the m.t.a. and city realized they needed a complete streets bond. i believe a couple weeks ago, the m.t.a. kicked off community comprehensive planning and walking tours and all sorts of efforts to try to coordinate pedestrian count downs from union to market street. keep an eye out for further input on that. another one of the bicycle projects included in prop k allocation is the long awaited market and valencia street gap projects which deals with accommodating a left turn. i won't go into the details, but the good news is construction should start this month. a couple of the pedestrian safety projects in this district, the first one at tenderloin safe routes to school is a federal project just under a million dollars awarded to the m.t.a. you can see the description on the scope. we are waiting for m.t.a. schedule and the design funds were just obligated in june. this project should get going in full swing very soon. one project i will mention is a regional transportation for liveable grants cities for the alle
records of any kind relating to discussions with any other agencies. the references to the san jose city attorney's office are dated 9 months after that. but i think what is really important is that there is a, i think, a reference in an e-mail that it was mr. st craw who spoke to the city attorney about taking these cases. so what we don't know is how this magically happened, nine months later. there are also no e-mails or other written communications of any kind internally within the staff or with any of the commissioners with one exception which i will give you in a moment. so there is no way to track how this all came about. >> it is obvious that none of you were directly involved in the decision, which considering that it involved your... it had to be completely transparent and it had to be one that everybody would accept. i did find an e-mail from the chairman. it surprised me. it said, it went to mr. san croy. read shaw's complaints is there not any reason that we can't release san jose's analysis about why st san croy's allegations fall. i don't know much about ethics but i know
what we see now is a bit of an abuse in terms of the number of vendors that the city has leased space to in our parks. and parks and recreation is for parks and recreation and not necessarily should be a place where we are leasing space to more vendors than we particularly need in specific areas. there is a place for vendors, for food vendors for various vendors in certain areas of the parks, but i think we are focusing way too much time on trying to figure out how we generate revenue for the city more so than we are trying to figure out how to make sure that those uses are good uses for the people who use the parks . >> julian davis here. you know, i think we're seeing somewhat of a crisis in our parks and recreation department. i found that the department is severely mismanaged. we have synthetic fields going we have privatization and commercialization of our park spaces. we have rec directors being fired and park patrol officers being hired. we have onerous fees for access to community space, pricing community events out of our park spaces. the question is about whether particular
by board members? commissioner maufus? >> thank you, president yee, i want to remind everyone from the city select meeting is this thursday, october 25, at 3:30 room 250 at city hall. it is chaired by supervisor campos and chui and commissioner mendoza and myself and we have one item and that is our ag requirements. >> i believe that there is a budget committee meeting on november the 8th. >> president yee, we are waiting for confirmation of that meeting, i believe pending a question about commissioner wynn's availability and the regular meeting of the budget and business services committee would fall on wednesday, november 7th. we have requested consideration of moving that meeting one day later to thursday november 8th, and i believe commissioner wynns is reresearching her ability and rewill finalize it. >> thank you, we are finished with this section? >> commissioner? >> yes, go ahead. >> i want to announce that the rules committee meeting. the october rules committee meeting was canceled because we need to get the rest of the elections to get the report from the advocates in sacramento,
transferring compliance officers who deal with lb situations and other compliance officers to the city administrator's office. then you have you guys in the middle of the situation changing the rules without really getting the input from the lbes. nobody who is not a san franciscan should come here and say, i spoke to some lbes in san francisco and they kind of agree to go with the flow. that doesn't work. we don't want to badger sfpuc. but the fact is we lost on the waste system improvement project, and we were not, i repeat, not lose on the sewer system improvement project. because i have over 500 young men, i brought some of them here. i don't want to fill this chamber with some strong men. i don't want to go there, but we will not lose unless we have meaningful discussion with the union involved. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. yes, sir. >>> thank you, commissioners, art jensen with bosca. i think this is a great thing the commission did when they extend it had to a regional program to include workers outside san francisco that are paying two-thirds of the water bills
. it's a perfect time right now to get away with absolutely anything in city hall. you've got the sunshine ordinance, quietly paid off and snoozing. not even paying attention. why, you could put al-qaeda out here on the transportation authority and you could probably get away with it. because you've got the whole system rapped up. eth ethics commission, brown act. whichever way you want to go, san franciscans, we're ramming this down your throat. why? it's not about democracy, it's about communism. we tell you as a dictatorship what we think is best for you regardless of what the people voted for. regardless of what is good for the city and its citizens. and if you as supervisors and members of public sit back and allow this type of absolute tyranny shows you have no backbone or discretion and you'ra complete moron. >> thank you. >> is there anybody member of the public that would like to speak seeing none? public comment is closed. my suggestion would be make for each item that you explain exactly what the recommendation from the committee was, whether approval, non-approval
is incredibly helpful to the city. i have been looking for those days where we celebrated just as enthusiastically those super bowl wins with joe montana, steve young and coming down market street. as we did with the giants a year and a half to two years ago. these were incredible inspirational opportunities we have, now hosting a super bowl. being part of a bay area effort to bring this incredibly helpful event that isn't just one few hours worth of games. there's all kinds of events that happen during super bowl week. i believe that the bulk of them will be hosted here in san francisco because this will be where we reflect strong infrastructure of tourism, where we host things and do well. this is what san francisco is about. we have an incredible committee of people that have volunteered and put forth i want to be part of this team effort to, build a bay area super bowl event that will be not only long lasting for the sports itself but with daniel's leadership and supervisor feral that's been such an incredible partner in the dialogue to help us form our ideas. and for someb
of an enabler this body has been, it enables city bodies and personnel to evade their daoulties under the law and to hide that from public scrutiny. the whistle blower laws are not be used to protect the whistle blower but to protect the target. they are being used to hide the true facts of the investigation and to allow the city agency and employees to evade their actions. they hide the extent and the validity of the investigative process used by the ethics staff and the public records law are always intended to disclose rather than conceal public matters. instead these laws are purposefully misinterpreted to protect the agencies in question but also the ethics staff. as far as you not having a conflict of interest, let's look at the arts commission when they got the report from the civil grand jury that listed what they had done, including spending $300,000 on things that they had no legal authority to do so. charging fees, that they had no legal authority and fire the cultural director and replace the head of the commission. the bottom line is if you were a commission and you were in charg
are in the same city, san francisco so congratulations. [cheers and applause] so for context i just want to mention a few things and this is no news to all of you here in the room and the people standing up with me today, but today in america more than 10 million people are living in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty and limited investment and opportunities for themselves and their children, and we know that one of the most important factors in determining the economic and financial success of peoples whether or not a child grows up in those high poverty neighborhoods? a. the fact that we can predict health, education outcomes of children based on the zip code, where they live is really a tragedy and it's not something that we as americans want to see as an outcome for the next generations and part of the obama's in fact and i have builds on this and the revitalization program and with choice neighborhoods including the planning grants we're announcing here in san francisco we intend to replicate that success across the count ree. as you know today every federal dollar is precious an
people and said, play, we set up 3 points around the city and said play, make this stuff connect. see if we can talk to each other. we had the national guard above us in a helicopter, even though it was really foggy, they didn't see much, but they demonstrated proof of concept that they can connect the video feed. we learned there are limitations in things of band width and video feed that i'm not qualified to talk about, i'm strictly a push to talk guy. we know as a city when the earth moves, things fall, we get a lot of rubble. that's going to be one of our critical, critical things we have to do. we have to be able to move material and personnel and one of the ways we're going to be doing that is how do we actually get the debris off the road so we can put things back to work. so that was the command of control exercise. we had the marine corps, the navy, and the national guard all working with our department of public works figuring out how would they work together. we didn't give them a lot of coaching, we just kind of put them in a tent and said here is your scenario, here's
do find it meaningful that the city attorney reminds us that we have no legal conflict either individually or collectively. i have no obligation to the executive director, the executive director obligation is to the commission as a group and to the city and county, not personal. i can understand why we don't have staff to investigate their supervisor, that makes complete sense. so in trying to... i just want you to create a window where we didn't just rush to do something that thoughtful people were flagging for. but as we were trying to construct it, as a question of legal conflict and of our confidence to do it and our responsibility to do it, which is the other part mr. gibner raised. there is the past practice, the past example involving the deputy director, where we did seek counsel from others so that it would not be a staff colleague doing the investigation, but this body handled it. and i quite honestly can't remember if i was on at that time, and if so, whether we analyzed this, i came on in 07, probably not in time for that item. and i think that it is fair for peopl
our public schools and restore jtor city college. >> thank you, miss selby. >> two of the things that are being done this november and i would love for to you vote for both of them, 30 and 38. those are two measures that would raise money for education and money in education is in dire straits. it's okay to vote for both. i also do support gross receipts. and i'm a small business person, and i wanted to let you all know that i have done sort of looked what i pay now $9,000. i have seven employees and i pay $9,000 a year and i will pay $750. so for small businesses the gross receipts actually does help and does not put the burden on the little guy and it is progressive and so it does become progressively as you make more money. many one concern with small businesses there are businesses out there that have a lot of gross receipts, but they have no profit. and this is something that the only thing that concerns about those two things. finally i would be okay with reinstating the vehicle license fee at the levels it was before. >> thank you. candidate john rizzo, who could not join
and the finding that's it's fiscally feasible and a good business deal for the city to move forward with and launch into the next levels of review. we will refine the project and that coordination and further project review. we hope we're here in january for the lease approval and we hope to get the construction going not long after and that's the overview. i am competing with playoff games and other things so i went quick and i am open to questions and i wanted to thank and congratulate the orden team for their contribution. i think they said this is a difficult but typical odi project. i am clear we're a typical odi counter party and i appreciate their patience in going through and learning the process they have been doing with us. thank you. >> okay. so do i have a motion to approve? >> so moved. >> second. >> public comment? and we have one from corin woods. >> good afternoon commissioners. i am corin woods. i am a member of the central water front advisory group and have been working on the pier 70 project for 12 or 15 years so far. we have had a lot of discussions wit
incorrectly relied on deputy city attorney improper letter to the sunshine ordinance task force in which he wrongly combined two or three of dr. derek kurr's complaints under one ball of wax wrongly. he made a mistake when he did that. in section 1040 is not whether disclosure is permitted, it is whether disclosure is forbidden. jerry made that lettering error. how a deputy city attorney can confound forbidden can permitted and then, deputy city attorney herrick fell into the same mix is really disturbing. >> let me ask you about that mr. hau. because c3-699-13, appears to use the term to the extent permitted by state law. >> i draw your attention, commissioner hur to section 1040 b. i'm assuming that state law takes precedence over 699-13. i would assume, sir, that you would know that 1040 should take precedence over the city charters or this particular government conduct code which is not even at the city charter level, if i am right. >> 1040 b, clearly states, a public entity is a privilege to refuse to disclose official information... unless disclosure is forbidden. there is nothing >>
